Another lodging knee being repaired. All unsound timber has been removed and the sometimes small remaining timber is built up to the required dimensions with curved or straight laminations before being shaped and painted.

There are 50 lodging knees on the Alma Doepel – most timber but some are steel. Of the timber knees about 15 need to be repaired or replaced. All others have been inspected and will be repainted in situ.
